Revealing Multiplicity: A Workshop led by Kevin Power

Is William Blake’s ‘mental fight’ against reduction and fragmentation more relevant than ever in our postmodern world? ‘… he only takes portions of existence and fancies that the whole …’ In this workshop we will be exploring what it takes to think differently, and how in particular, Blake was influential on the ideas of Gregory Bateson, anthropologist, systems thinker and author of Steps to an Ecology of Mind.  Bateson is acknowledged as one of the most original thinkers of our times.  Kevin will draw on insights from his own doctoral research which explores notions of ambivalence and wholeness as seen through the ‘lens’ of Blake’s provocations. Kevin Power is an organisation consultant and occasional curator. He helps people to engage with the ‘generalities and minute particulars’ of organisational life.
